Lauren Hanson

Professional Learning Officer & PA

Lauren grew up in Newcastle, and returned home to work for the AoEA in 2022 after she graduated from the University of Oxford with a degree in History. She is currently completing a graduate internship programme set up by Sunderland University, and has been with the AoEA since September 2022.

Lauren runs the AoEA Professional Learning Programme for education advisers, which provides both online and face to face seminars as well as our fortnightly Education Keeping In Touch (EduKIT) meetings throughout the academic year. She works alongside members of the AoEA Development Team, as well as several external experts, to ensure this busy programme runs smoothly. Lauren also provides administrative support to the team, and PA support to our Executive Chair, Les Walton.
